|Meowp. It is indeed best to seperate the newcomer from the the oldsters and allow them to sniff each other through the door, but, this doesn't always happen.....when daddy moved in here, he brought his four cats with him. I decided that I would not be cooped up in in one room in my own house, so I escaped and introduced myself. Mommy and daddy, seeing blood was not being shed, allowed us to work things out ourselves...and so far so good. Nina and I still hiss at each other, and stalk each other, but now it is done mostly in fun.
When Jasmine came to live with us mommyand daddy again tried the seperate the new kitty routine.
Jasmine would not cooperate.
She was a little kitten with a big attitude. She went up to the big cats and hissed mighty hisses at each to tell them she was not taking any guff from any cat. She might be young, but she is mighty.
They studied her as if she were an interesting bug, and then all the cats adopted her.....including meeee. I was laying on my bed growling at her, and she hopped up and rubbed her kitten nose against mine....I think she thought I was her cat mother and she still does because she is my shadow.
Soo...if blood is not being shed, and just a lot of hissing is going on, at this point it might be best to allow your kitties to work it out amongst thenselves.
Sorry I cannot be much more help.
